Wakatere is a family sailing club on the shores of Narrow Neck Beach, Devonport. As a volunteer run organisation we work hard to ensure sailing is well supported. 

We sail a range of dinghy classes and windfoilers with regular club racing, junior coaching and entry-level learn to sail courses for all ages with an emphasis on fun and adventure.
